Subject: Fun little slice of the time period.
This simple animated short discusses how missile guidance systems work. It softens the subject of what the missiles do by not showing any explosions, just some splashes into the sea, but you can't deny that all the U.S. missiles fly over the Atlantic...

Simplified explanation of what happens when a missle is launched. Don't worry kids, you won't get scared over WHY the missle is launched. It's a good broad overview, led by the trusted animation of John Sutherland.

A late John Sutherland produced cartoon from c. 1962, touting how Bell Labs' guidance systems for missiles work. Told from the point of a view from a missile, it explains how the guidance system, using radar and ground based computers make course corrections and speed adjustments. Fairly straight forward explanation of how the system works.
